Thanks to the generosity and support of Frostburg State University employees and FSU Foundation, Inc., FSU students eventually will benefit from two new scholarships to attend the University—the Housekeeping Scholars Fund and the University Police Fund.
The funds, created from annual gifts made by FSU physical plant employees and University Police staff members through FSU’s Faculty & Staff Campaign, will, once they are endowed, open new doors for promising students in whom these groups have particular interest.
“These two new endowments reflect FSU staff members’ belief in the University’s success,” said Chris Harmon, Director of Annual Giving. “Over 60 percent of Frostburg State University employees have now contributed to this year’s FSU Faculty & Staff Campaign. This percentage of participation is the highest in FSU’s history as well as in the University of Maryland System and shows the commitment of FSU employees to the University, its programs and its students.”
The Housekeeping Scholarship Fund is designed to provide support to dependents of FSU physical plant employees. The University Police Fund will provide financial support to students with a declared intent to have a career in law enforcement. Once fully endowed, both scholarships will be awarded through the FSU Financial Aid Department.
